Doctor Mark, I have the Helicon 400MK2'S all set up with the C200MK2 and Dali Phantom ikon in walls, what's your thoughts on the Parasound HCA 1206 High Current THX 6 Channel Power Amplifier to drive the speakers, over the Halo & New Classic Amps?
I'm thinking to use the Parasound HCA 1206 To bi-amp the front three.
